I want to create a graphic banner add that will appear at the top of each page of a site. I want to design the first one and the others will share similar attributes of this one and will have different titles, and graphics, though will share the same look and feel as this master one.
What is the best way to create around 10 of these graphics in CS5 as a single file and export each one as needed?
Sounds to me like you should try using CSS Sprites.
I could explain, but this article: http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/04/27/the-mystery-of-css-sprites-techniques-tools-and -tutorials/ pretty much covers it.
Thanks though I want to do everything in FW. I'm just wondering if the best way to do this is through Layer, States, or some other way?
Fair enough. I'd just put them all on different layers. Easy to name and easy to organise.
